The name Dee Henderson is synonymous with authenticity. Her books shine with believable facts and descriptions while her characters think and act like the professionals they are. THE TRUTH SEEKER delivers another engrossing, enjoyable read.

Lisa, another one of the siblings in the OMalley family, is a forensic pathologist sidelined due to an injury. Far from thrilled with her new desk job, she sinks herself into it anyway. Soon she is embroiled in a case that could put her at risk and too close to Marshal Quinn Diamond.

In his spare time, Quinn has searched 20 years for his fathers killer. When it looks like Lisa could help, he resists involving her. Since somewhere along the line shes gone from being a friend to something more, the last thing he wants is for her to be hurt againespecially because he feels responsible for her current injury. Eventually, they work together doggedly to solve what appear to be related crimes until Lisa falls into the killers hands. Will the pieces of the puzzle fall into place too late for Quinn to save Lisa? (June, 350 pp., $11.99)
